Audio46's Opinion

The Edition 8 delivers remarkable performance across all frequency ranges. The bass is smooth with depth and immaculate separation, while the mids offer crystal clear fidelity and accuracy, bringing vocals forth with incredibly nuanced detail. The highs are beautiful and highly transparent, capturing even the subtlest sounds. With an eye-catching design and excellent sound quality, the Edition 8 is a top-tier option at this price point, and it's one of our favorites in this class. Given the compact and light build of the Edition 8, it's also one of the few ultra high-end headphones that you can listen to on the go.

Ultrasone Edition 8 Ruthenium Audiophile Headphones

The Ultrasone Edition 8 Ruthenium Audiophile Headphones is hand-made in Germany.
Each Edition 8 Ruthenium headphone holds its own serial number to assure a distinctive identification.

Edition 8 Ruthenium incorporates stunning attention to detail in every aspect of headphone design. The outer ear cups are covered in Ruthenium. This precious metal is known for its brilliant metallic sheen and durable properties. The outer ear cups are emblazoned with a decorative clasp of noble metal.

The interior ear cups of Edition 8 Ruthenium headphones and the headband are covered in very soft genuine black Ethiopian sheepskin leather. This is the finest leather available and provides the finest isolation of any leather.

The metal headband of Edition 8 typifies latest scientific knowledge in headband design and development. This unique progression of headband design made by Ultrasone is highly developed and technical precision work; specifically engineered for the Edition 8 series. The headband is also covered with the very soft genuine black Ethiopian sheepskin leather.

Edition 8 Ruthenium comes with an exclusively manufactured bag made from smooth, fine grain Madras goatskin produced in France for storage and transportation.

In addition to a titanium plated tri-bass-tube driver, this Edition series headphone follows Ultrasone's S-Logic Plus Technology which results in a most neutral sound impression with more vivid perception of voices and instruments. The Edition 8 Ruthenium also contains MU-Metal shielding (ULE technology) that reduces magnetic field emissions. Naturally, the Edition 8 Ruthenium headphones require the ULE technology as the exclusiveness of these headphones call for the ULE standard.
